Using art in social work education
“Realm of the Dead” is an autobiographical project that uses self-referential theater as a vehicle for self-healing and advocacy. Based on pedagogy and theater of the oppressed, it intends to advance social work research and practice, as tools of critical reflection, personal growth and advocacy.
Through U-M’s Integrated Product Development course, students from business, engineering and art and design worked with Cass Community Social Services in Detroit to develop a new product that recycles old building materials into glass coasters.

Small changes in diet could help you live healthier
Eating a hot dog could cost you 36 minutes of healthy life, while choosing to eat a serving of nuts instead could help you gain 26 minutes of extra healthy life, according to a U‑M study. The study, published in the journal Nature Food, evaluated more than 5,800 foods, ranking them by their nutritional disease burden to humans and their impact on the environment.
